The participants were people with visual and physical disabilities as well as youth workers and leaders with great knowledge and experience in the field of youth work and mobility projects!

Moreover, they maximized the learning impact on direct participants coming from the participating organizations and they increased their cross-sectoral cooperation skills by cooperating with staff members from the fields of youth, training and education, business.
